I have repeatedly been asked if MaxQ had a product that could help get shippers created for kit items that were not in stock. While we are about to release an Auto-Kit module (more on this later), most of the requirements can be handled by what appears to be a little known feature already in Acumatica’s Inventory Module, Non-Stock Kits.
Taken from the Acumatica help:
“When a non-stock kit is listed on a sales order as a line item, its stock components are specified on a pick list and shipped to the customer. Upon shipment confirmation, the quantity of stock components is decreased while the quantities of non-stock components and kits are not tracked in any way.
Only the standard cost valuation method may be assigned to non-stock kits.
On the sale of a non-stock kit with stock components, the system generates an inventory issue and debits the COGS accounts of the stock components (by their costs). On the sale of a non-stock kit with only non-stock components, no inventory issue is generated.”
